The Telemecanique brand Altistart 01 mini soft starts from Schneider Electric provide sophisticated starting and stopping control for motors in a small package. These mini soft starts limit stress on the mechanical parts of machines found in facilities. They also reduce the cost of maintenance and downtime by providing smooth motor starting and stopping control for applications that are not high horsepower and do not require high starting torque.
Altistart 01 mini soft starts are available in three different performance levels, including ATS01N1 Torque Limiting, ATS01N2 Low Power, and ATS01N2 High Power. They meet the application needs of a wide range of fractional and low-horsepower single-phase and three-phase asynchronous motors, from 1/4 to 75 horsepower at 110-575 volts. Most Altistart 01 mini soft start models are just 45 mm wide, the standard width for International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) low-horsepower motor starters, and are up to 40 percent smaller than previous models. Capable of being used with almost any motor starter, the Altistart 01 mini soft start is an alternative to low-horsepower electromechanical reduced voltage starters.
Installation is quick and simple with the option of DIN rail or panel mounting, a contactor-style power wiring scheme, and a removable control wiring terminal. Side-by-side mounting can save up to 25 percent of valuable panel space. The mini soft start can be used to add the benefits of soft starting to any existing motor starter and is ideal for retrofit applications and other common uses, such as material handling conveyors, beltdriven machinery, fans, pumps, automatic doors and gates, small compressors, and process machinery.
